Our mission is to educate, inform and inspire the general public about recreational gold prospecting and mineral collection in our area and around the globe.
Our vision is to give prospectors, rockhounds and mineral enthusiasts a place to gather and share their experiences while educating others about the importance of mineral extraction and creating a public awareness of ethical prospecting and collection methods.
The Central Maryland GPAA was established in 2012 as an official chapter of the Gold Prospectors Association of America and is operated by Central Maryland Gold Prospectors, Inc., a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation.
